Sober Shots

So dark.  So deep.. So hard to breathe...
No where to retreat.
Wont accept defeat!
No time to sin, or look within.
These walls are closing in...

I've spent some time on the bottom!
Big problem!!!
Scraping, clawing, gnawing my way...
Telling myself if I'm vertical,
it was a good day!

And hey! 
Maybe I'm not on my feet,
but I'm off my knees.
My dreams I believe.
Therefore, I strive to achieve...
